about me

I love playing bridge, teaching bridge, and just thinking bridge. My best friends are bridge pros; my father-in-law (Marc Jacobus) is a bridge pro; my daughter's boyfriend is a bridge pro, etc. You get the picture. My wife (Phyllis Harris) would probably be a bridge pro had we met earlier than 7 years ago. As it is I convinced her to quit practicing law in order to travel the world with me and my posse of Bridge Pros. I love my life

Country
United States of America

And Another One Bites the Dust
As someone who has known Mike Passell for over 35 years, I have no doubt of Mike's ethics, at and away, from the bridge table. All of you who are denigrating him, have not read that he was found NOT guilty of any ethics violations. I, for one, have ...
What is your bid?
Pass, but with one less , I would bid 2
USBC Appeal #1
Response to Kit: You said, "I think the argument for not saving if the 3C just shows clubs is as strong if not stronger than the argument for not saving if the 3C call is a diamonds raise" If I submitted a poll: Given the alternative meanings of 3C, do ...
USBC Appeal #1
Response to Bud: The AC write-ups ARE sent to those involved, who are asked to check for factual errors. When I corrected comments attributed to me I was told that the telephonic connection was poor (this was a telephone committee), which might explain the mistakes, but that my comments didn ...
USBC Appeal #1
South Speaks: The AC writeup states, "South contended that he was concerned that if West ended up playing in 6D that North might not lead a singleton club". Apparently this was how the committee interpreted what I actually said, which was 1) I assumed East's failure to raise diamonds ...
Bidding Decision 1
xxxxx Axxx Axx x on a diamond lead we make 4H with 2-2 clubs and 3-2 hearts. Opening leader may well lead a short club suit. QTxxx AQJxx Qx x We make 4H, they score 6D It feels like they're a photo for 3N, which a misguided pass may ...
Should North overcall 3S in IMPs, vul vs not?
Opening bid, 6 card suit, short in opener's suit. Sure, you get destroyed, but pass is losing bridge. This is an easy one.
Gamesmanship in the Vanderbilt
To call this a tactic is unfair. If a pair wants to play multi they are required to supply the ACBL written defenses. This is black and white. Joe and I quit playing multi simply because we hated carrying those defenses around with us. More accurately, we got tired of ...
Cheek-Grue
2008? Wow, seems like a hundred years ago. But that explains how the hand got here. Gavin was our teammate, along with Warren Spector, and Brad and Fred. And of course Stevie was our opponent. I can't remember what I was thinking at the time. All I can do ...
Theoretical Question
Every time I forget to run my spell checker...
